    If your read the inserts on any HPT, It will tell you how accurate the tests are on the days prior to your missed period. I think you can start testing about 3 days before and should get some decent results. But just make sure you test on FMU.

    Best of Luck!

    It depends on each persons luteal phase. I would think at 13 dpo you may get a reuslt, but if it shows a BFN dont be discouraged. It may just be too early still

    I think I was also around 12/13 dpo when I took my test! I knew before taking a test that I was pregnant; it's that mothers intuition I guess- But I got a very dark positive result on 12 dpo so if I were you, i'd test now :) Good Luck!#


    By the way, use first response; I can highly recommend that brand!!

    First of all, congratulations on your BFP :)
    Secondly, I have never taken CB Digital because personally I have found the CB brand to be unreliable. I once took a test which , within a minute or so, gave me an evap line which could be mistook for a positive result. I have only ever taken one CB pregnancy test which resulted in a BFP and that was when I was 6/7 weeks pregnant. I first found out I was pregnant when I was 4 weeks+, so it took another 3 weeks or more before I trusted CB enough to try it out.
    Thats just my experience though. Wobbles got her BFP from using the clear blue test, so she may have a different view on it.
    But I dont particularly like digital HPT's, they're too expensive and you cant keep the result for any longer than 10 minutes before it fades!

    I'm a CB girl :D As long as read in the right time frame and not dipped for more than the 10 seconds I think it was its ok. All tests can be prone to evaps personally my way round that was to confirm with a different brand often the Tesco pinkies.

    A digital .... NO DOUBT!! Congratulationssssssss :yipee: YAY you!

    BTW still have my CB from this pregnancy - still clear as light :D The digital displays don't hold though which is gutting!

    I can totally agree with the comment you made about not leaving the stick in the pee too long, and also the cheapie tests being a pile of shit!!!
    When I was 10 weeks pregnant (yes I was STILL testing lol, go figure) I had 3 almost negative HPT's; I was worried sick so I went to see the DR, who in turn told me I had clearly peed too much on the test which is why it was resulting in what looked to me like a negative.
    So yes, I'd say that 'dipping' time is definetly something to be taken into consideration when using ANY tests.... The cheap tests, well, they're about as much use as a chocolate fire guard (as my gran would say)

    With Bailey, I got a BFP the day I was supposed to start..I just knew. With Kassidy, I was four days late and got a BFP. Everyone's different though. When my sister was pregnant with her first son, she tested over several weeks and kept getting BFN..even at the dr.'s office...blood was negative too! Finally, at about 9 weeks along, she got a BFP. strange

    All he could do is confirm pregnancy! Nothing happens until a couple of weeks. Some GPs will some won't lol! My GP just said she believes me & the hosp wouldn't scan me until I proved I was pregnant (pee in bottle lol) .... Weird
